About the club

Mountfield United Football Club are members of the the East Sussex Football League, competing in Division One for the 2017-18 season, the club also annually competes in the Hastings FA and Robertsbridge Charity Cup competitions, reaching the final of the Robertsbridge Junior Cup in 2014. The club's home pitch is located at Riverhall, Mountfield (further details below).

The club was founded in 1909 as Mountfield Football Club and players would have come from the village, as Sedlescombe Football League rules meant that teams could not field players from outside their respective villages. As well as competing in the Sedlescombe League, the club also spent their early years competing in the Ticehurst and Battle leagues, before joining the expanding Hastings League and eventually the East Sussex League. The clubs home ground used to be located at John's Cross, next to the A21 near enough opposite the now closed John's Cross Inn, before moving closer to Mountfield village, our current home pitch. The club have also played home games at Claverham and Netherfield in their more recent history.

In recent years the club has witnessed a mixture of good and bad seasons, the club enjoyed a promotion winning season, with a cup final in the 2013/14 season, before the loss of key players saw a change in fortunes for the following seasons. The 2016-17 season was another frustrating season, but if recent trends are anything to go by Mountfield United will be looking stronger for the coming season. Ed Crowhurst and Steve Forstch will continue with joint management duties, with John Matthews as club secretary and then club Chairman Nigel McDonagh seemingly doing every other job involved with running a football club. We're a friendly club and we welcome anyone who's interested in joining, so use the contact options on this website to in touch.
